This is a great example of what Alsace can offer. Since the region is in the rain shadow of the Vosges Mountains, it is very dry here, and the grapes develop high concentration on the vine. This makes for very expressive floral aromas and a rich, unctuous texture on the palate. Marc Tempe farms biodynamically and ferments this wine in large oval foudre, where the wine also ages for two years on the lees.
